The 2018 MLB postseason schedule has been released so it is time for Cleveland Indians fans to check out the October slate of games.

The Cleveland Indians currently own a 10-game lead in the American League Central and barring a Minnesota miracle, are headed for the postseason.

This is not breaking news, but the MLB did release the postseason schedule today. That means Indians fans can now see what days the Indians would be playing, at least in the ALDS.

This tweet from MLB Communications has the info:

The ALDS begins Friday, October 5 and could go as far as October 11. To hold off any talk of jinxes, that’s as far as I will personally look into the schedule. Though I did see that the World Series could end on the night of Halloween.

The Indians aren’t likely to end up with home-field advantage in the first round, at least right now, so the home games in the ALDS may come during the week. To be fair, this was also said last year before the Indians went off and finished with 102 wins.

Keeping it simple, the schedule is out and fans can keep it in the back of their minds. There is still plenty of time to go in the season and the Indians may not even be done tinkering with the roster just yet. It just seems so odd knowing the division is all but wrapped up so early in the summer. That makes this schedule release almost seem like a tease.

We are exactly two months away from the NL Wild Card Game so there is still plenty of time to go. Until then, we can keep busy by watching Jose Ramirez continue to build his MVP case without even cracking a single smile.
